The Dutch Data Protection Authority (DPA) hit Uber with a €10m (£8.5m) fine on Wednesday for breaking privacy rules related to the platform giant’s handling of gig workers’ personal data.

More than 170 Uber drivers in France initially complained to the French data protection authority which subsequently passed on the complaint to its Dutch counterpart due to Uber’s European headquarters being in the Netherlands.
